Our academic partner UCL has been ranked among the top 10 universities in the world according to the 2023 QS World University Rankings.

It follows news in April 2022 that UCL placed seventh globally for medicine, fourth globally for pharmacy and pharmacology and first for education in the QS World Rankings by Subject 2022.

The results from the latest rankings place UCL in the top one per cent of institutions worldwide included in the rankings.

UCLH works in close collaboration with UCL, including through a world-class partnership in research underpinned by the Biomedical Research Centre at UCLH and UCL.

QS is the world’s most-consulted international rankings, now including 1,422 universities - 124 more than in 2022 - making this year the publication's largest ever edition.

QS uses eight indicators, including academic reputation, employer reputation, citations per faculty, faculty-to-student ratio, international faculty ratio and international student ratio. Two metrics new for this year include employment outcomes and international research network.

On five of the metrics, UCL scored 98.6/100 or higher, with scores of 100 for international students and international research network – standing at second globally for this latter indicator.

UCLH chief executive David Probert said: “Congratulations to everyone at UCL on this achievement. UCL scores consistently high in university rankings – a reflection of the hard work and commitment to excellence we at UCLH see every day. I am proud of the strong partnership we have with our UCL colleagues.”
